Happily Ever After


One and one not always equals two. The couple and its complicated arithmetic through three stories where characters want to be happy but they don´t know how. When you get stood up, when you wake up beside a stranger, when after thirty years you don´t know what to speak about. The loneliness of sleeping alone and of sleeping with someone.

Teclas, Revista Temporales (Fragmento)


Typing the same document is boring and a little bit absurd, but when you are paid for that, it´s better not asking questions and just think about the money. The troubles begin when you have to share the typewriter: right side or the left? A comedy about personnel cuts and persons cuts, you know, the recession.

INSIDE, Collaboration with Pop Up Theatrics. Madrid, Hotel Intercontinental.

INSIDE is a performance intervention for international collaboration taking place in the private spaces of the iconic and storied Gara de Nord, Bucharest’s main train station. Last May PopUP Theatrics traveled to Madrid to launch INSIDE , our third concept, at the glamorous InterContinental.  From the posh full floor presidential suite to tiny maids closets to dark cellar corners, audience members were given the opportunity to enter into familiar territory while gaining unprecedented access to unseen spaces within the hotel.

Staged readings of TYPING in Washington


Set against the backdrop of the historic former residence of the Ambassadors of Spain, the funny and biting plays will come alive in a non-traditional setting. This event encourages international collaboration through creative partnerships among artists —Spain’s brightest young playwrights, outstanding DC actors, and innovative directors Joshua Morgan (Artistic Director, No Rules Theatre Company), Colin Hovde (Artistic Director, Theater Alliance), and Jacob Janssen (Assistant Director, Red SpeedoStudio Theatre)— while giving our mutual audiences a cross-cultural experience and a taste of some of the best contemporary playwriting coming out of Spain.
